Summary:"Ongoing population shifts, widening health disparities, and rapid genetic mutation are major factors in viral and bacterial dissemination worldwide. At the same time, the role of Asia in the recent SARS and bird flu outbreaks has made that continent a key area of interest. This book offers an overview of infectious syndromes affecting local, regional and international health, concentrating on their greatest areas of transmission."--Jacket.
